REVIEW: Instant Paris Lounge – A FREE Airport Lounge

instant paris lounge cdg airport

Walking through Charles de Gaulle Airport you may have noticed the “Instant Paris Lounge” signage. The free airport lounge opened late last year and is located in Terminal 2E at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The space has been designed to offer passengers with a longer wait between flights a more relaxing place to rest instead of the busy airport terminal. The dedicated zone has a distinctive French theme based on a Parisian apartment.

With the lounge area being based on a typical Parisian apartment there are separate zones for eating, relaxing and sleeping. The dining part of the lounge is provided by Naked, a casual dining restaurant offering both organic and fair trade food. For relaxing there is ample seating throughout the lounge, based in different areas. Some of the seating in a library themed area, some in-front of the giant television, and more in a gaming section of the lounge for children.

The new YotelAir lounge at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport is part of the Instant Paris Lounge. The YotelAir lounge and hotel is at the rear of the Instant Paris lounge and can be accessed for free if you are a member of Priority Pass. The YotelAir lounge provides the shower facilities in the Instant Paris Lounge. Yotel hotel provides 80 rooms which can be booked in 4 hour intervals.
